Customer Review

on 8 March 2010
I will break the review into two sections!

This is roughly 6-8 hours long and involves a variety of different locations. The graphics are simply amazing! I have a decent computer and it runs very smoothly on medium settings and still looks gorgeous, the back drops and draw distances are very very impressive.

The shooting mechanics are very enjoyable but the big letdown for me in singleplayer was I really didn't like the characters! In Call of duty 4 the characters are much more...serious. Battlefield bad company 2 has a more light hearted approach which is fine but it really bugged me at times.

Talking of bugs...! I have come accross a fair few in the single player such as audio dropping out, not being able to enter a vehicle and getting stuck in walls. It's forgiveable however as the action is quite intense. The AI is smart and challenging but most of all quite fun to play against.

The main reason why I purchased this game! Unlike many others on here I haven't had a single problem running or connecting to a server (really hope it stays that way) The server browser does take quite a while to load but a tip is to cancel the search after five seconds and quite a few servers will populate the list.

There are different game modes but unfortunatly most of them are rather dull. The only mode I have enjoyed is "rush" which has two sides fight against each other. One side has to defend locations on the map whilst the other attack and destroy these locations. It's hectic and fun! There is a very "epic" feel to the battles and it feels like you are actually in a warzone.

Another complaint with multiplayer is snipers! Yes I know they are part of the game but when you are attacking bases and two thirds of your team is glued to the top of a big hill it can get quite disheartening. So if you hate snipers you may want to look elsewhere as it is quite easy to master and as a result is a very popular choice in all game modes.

The other three classes are medic, assault and engineer which all have their own perks which are unlocked by gaining experience points. Therefore if your just starting out in the game it can be tough at first as nearly everyone will have more powerful equipment and perks.

I really enjoy playing assault and engineer which brings me neatly to another point..vehicles. Vehicles are fun to use and involve team effort to use effectively.
This is very much a team game...if you try to play rambo it can be very difficult.

Overall I expected more enjoyable game modes! The range of maps is good, the graphics excellent and the gameplay fun..worth a look =)
